Description: This recital contains the only available recording of Guarnieri's 1931 sonata in whose first two movements hints of impressionism peek out of a predominating lyrical voice but in whose finale, the frantic rhythms of Brazilian folk music finally make their appearance. Lili Boulanger's suite of short pieces add to the interest for collectors of hard-to-find repertoire. Antonio Menenses (cello), Celina Szrvinsh (piano).
